"The Man-Not", is not only a much-needed book to open a long overdue conversation about black men and boys, black masculinity, and black manhood, it is also a call to action. In light of the numerous revelations of Dr. Curry's examination of the subject matter concerning black male's being raped, sexually assaulted, marginalized, and having violence visited upon them by white men and women from slavery till the present day, the data and evidence he reveals forces us to challenge long-held biases, mythologies, and outright lies we've force fed for decades about black men and boys.
This book should be on the bookshelf of every black home in America, as well as the diaspora, and of those who want to know and understand what has happened to black men and boys historically. You can't have a conversation about the black family, the black community, and journey of black people, without having the story of black men and boys, told in full. Dr. Tommy Curry has given us a gift it that regards, and I hope that we appreciate that gift. Enjoy this historical read!
"The Man-Not" returns to the Black male what has been denied him for centuries and that is his humanity, by way of his vulnerability. This book challenges us to view the Black male in a different context, through a different lens, and began to appreciate that Black males have not benefited from gender but have actually been disadvantaged by it. I love it and, in my opinion, anyone who is serious about the study and understanding of the Black male in America will likewise. Highly recommend!
